Asus today introduced the Asus EAH4890 Series, which a press release claims is the world’s first graphics cards to utilize “Voltage Tweak” technology. Asus has launched two variants- the EAH4890 TOP/HTDI/1GD5, which is tweaked to provide more performance and the EAH4890 HTDI/1GD5.  The release claims that users will be able to boost GPU voltages via the SmartDoctor application and enjoy up to 15% in performance improvement. With this technology the GPU voltages can be increased from 1.312V to 1.4V in ASUS EAH4890/HTDI/1GD5, allowing GPU and memory clock performances to be boosted from 850MHz to 950MHz and 3900MHz to 4600MHz respectively.

The EAH4890 Series also incorporates ATI’s Stream technology, which utilizes the parallel processing power of AMD graphics processors to deliver better performance in graphics rendering and video processing.

Intel Announces 2GHz Atom Microprocessor

Intel celebrated the one-year anniversary of its popular Atom family of microprocessors on Wednesday by announcing a new 2GHz version of the chip.

Intel senior vice president Anand Chandrasekher announced the new chip at the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) in Beijing on Wednesday, as he pulled a small computer out of his pocket.

“Today we’re announcing two new products in the Atom family. The Z550, this is the first 2GHz processor that will fit in your pocket…,” he said.

The Z550 is aimed at mobile Internet devices (MIDs) and works with up to 2GB of DDR2 DRAM.

The second new new Z-series Atom chip is the Z515, which can run at up to 1.2GHz speeds when needed and is also aimed at the MID market.

Both chips are made to be as power-efficient as possible to keep small battery powered devices running longer.

The two microprocessors incorporate Intel Hyperthreading technology, which enables them to more efficiently run multiple programs on a device at once and enables richer graphics.

The two new Z-series chips are already available for companies to develop products around. Pricing information was not disclosed.

Intel’s first Atom microprocessor launched last April at IDF Shanghai.

The microprocessor family has won fame for the product they’re most used in today, netbooks, or mini-laptops. The MID product segment has so far not been as successful as the netbook market.
